Think about the best concerts you’ve attended and chances are you had a lot of fun, dancing and smiling throughout the show. This is exactly the kind of vibe you will experience when Black Masala is performing live. Performing hundreds of shows a year has helped Washington, DC’s gypsy punk brass band hone their sound, while injecting it with a healthy dose of funk, soul and eclectic grooves. Black Masala is all about having fun! In 2015 Black Masala released their second studio album, I Love You Madly and has plans to release remixes of that album later this year. I Love You Madly was well received and reached #2 on the CMJ World Chart and #4 on Canada’s national Earshot radio chart. On their second album it is clear that Black Masala are having a lot of fun incorporating various musical influences into their go-anywhere Brass sound. Ranging from Gypsy punk, Balkan brass and New Orleans funk, to Bhangra and bounce, this is an album for the multicultural music listener. The heavy horns and danceable rhythms tie “I Love You Madly” together and create an album that can be played for a wide range of audiences.
West Philadelphia Orchestra
West Philadelphia Orchestra
West Philadelphia Orchestra began as neighborhood friends fiddling on porches and in parks, making noise at protests and outsider art gatherings, and dedicated to livening up their bohemian village. Over the years, WPO has become larger and louder, the parties wilder and more ecstatic, and the band developed a singular mashup blend of Balkan brass traditions, American jazz and global beats. Their new album, Tour de Filli, is a culmination of this evolution, marking the point at which they have transformed a foreign brass tradition into our own. With cutting brass, searing woodwinds and some of the tightest beats around, West Philadelphia Orchestra invites audiences to lose themselves in earthy sounds that shake, break and roll.
